Overview

Though one thinks of Elektra and Vanguard as the main record labels of the folk revival, the giant Columbia Records also made some inroads into the field, signing up not only Bob Dylan but also a wide range of folkies, from Pete Seeger to The New Christy Minstrels. This 15-track compilation delves deeper into the Columbia vault for tracks by Leadbelly and Burl Ives, but its focus is on 60s performers -- The Brothers Four, Carolyn Hester, Malvina Reynolds. Many of them, like Dylan, are John Hammond signings. The focus of the album is scattered, but the selection is excellent, and Columbia was long overdue to examine its folk archives.

This collection is very enjoyable and is especially important to anyone who is interested in the roots of the Folk Movement of the mid 1960's as this CD has all the important early versions which inspired that movement. The last cut on this CD is Malvina Reynold's "Little Boxes" which is one of those little jewels that ought to be in everyone's collection.
